Fava greens and ramps, with anchovy and currants

Fava greens are the leaves of a fava bean plant. They have a faintly sweetish taste, somewhat of a cross between fava beans and spinach.

Ramps are also known as wild leeks.

This is a Sicilian treatment, with the ramps substituted for garlic and onion.

Creamy scrambled eggs, morel mushrooms, chermoula.

We've made masala dosa for dinner a few times now, and decided to use the some leftovers for today's breakfast.

 

The recipes for the components are from the Prashad Cookbook, which I highly recommend.

Yes. You have to start it a couple of days in advance, but it isn't difficult.

My housemate needed more than muesli this morning. Did him some eggs hollandaise with sauteed courgette on toast. Hope that's set him up for the day!

Breakfast inspired by ingredients. A fast trip to Buffalo yesterday landed me in Trader Joe's where I stocked up on Ak Mak crackers and grabbed a small container of creme fraiche. Mushrooms, garlic, thyme and creme fraiche on crackers.

Gorgeous! Masala dosa is one of my favorite foods on earth, not far behind Mysore masala dosa (inside of dosa slathered with red chile paste). :smile:

 

Clean out the fridge breakfast here -chorizo and eggs with tomatoes, onions, and fresh chiles, topped with Cholula salsa and avocado. Warm corn tortillas.

Curried chickpeas with coconut and spinach, served with spicy tomato chutney, raita and garlic pickle

Just something I threw together. I wanted to introduce my boyfriend to homemade Indian food since all of his previous experiences have been at restaurants. Homemade tends to be lighter and fresher (e.g., not as much ghee, sour cream or coconut milk).

The chickpeas were soaked last night for 8 hours, then drained and simmered in lightly salted water on medium-low heat, partly covered, for an hour.

Curry contains ghee, black mustard seed, dried curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste, sliced onion, black cumin seed, cardamom pods, chickpeas, dried coconut, Greenmarket spinach, sea salt, turmeric and a little of the chickpea cooking liquid.

The chutney and pickle were store-bought. The raita is just cumin seed and panch phoron toasted in some ghee, then stirred into unflavored yogurt, seasoned to taste with sea salt.

2014-05-07%2008.40.16.jpg

 

A soft-boiled 6-day-soy-pickled egg.  It's the first time I've tried the soy pickle - I had a spare little bottle of soy that I bought for a picnic but that never got used.  I planned it for four days, then went off gallivanting out to play on the water and it ended up 6.  No 4-day benchmark to compare it with, but as far as salt level goes, it was just right.  I loved the flavour of the yolk.  The hint of mushiness in the top of the white was, uh, different; and the soy took 80% of the brownness off the outside of the egg - it was a patchy film that I wiped off with my thumb.  Who knew ?  It was after I filled my pickling tub with soy that I thought some ponzu would be a good addition, so there's that for next time.

 

We've just had four days holidays here, that I turned into 5 by taking Friday off.  So taken overall, this is a fridge meal.  I've been making my taramasalata a lot this winter, for that fishy garlic hit in a hot snack that's ready in the time it takes the toaster to do its thing.  Coming home last night, I mixed and baked a quick loaf either side of going out for dinner (oil-pickled Hiroshima oysters; duck in port sauce / mashed potatoes locally for 20 bucks, what's not to like ?).  I force-rose it in the combo oven at the "ferment" setting that holds at 37C.  "Baked doughniut" effect courtesy of slapdash slicing.

 

The sarnie is Nisshin-world-deli salami getting past its best, chingensai/pak choy, tomato, aged Scottish cheddar also from Nisshin, and safflower mayo.  Bidding for extra back-to-work slovenly points by using last night's toast-crumb-adorned crockery and eating on top of paperwork in front of the computer.

Mexican chorizo, onion, tomato, zucchini, Thai basil, and eggs, with warm corn tortillas. I finally found a chorizo brand I like (don't ask me which one) so I've been on a chorizo kick.

Good Mexican Chorizo is very hard to find

 

in CA  they had two types:  one very very cheap that was made of pig's lymph nodes of all things

 

they gotta go somewhere

 

and one a bit more pricy w pork meat.

 

rare in N.E.    but trader joes has or had Im not sure some vegertarian chorizo of all things and it was OK

 

better than nothing.

 

I try not to eat other animals immune system

 

just saying.

There is no way to make this look like anything but the dog's breakfast! It is in fact Richard Olney's onion omelette with vinegar.

Next time I would risk Richard rolling in his grave as I enhanced it with some gruyere.

""  Richard Olney's ""

 

there is a guy who knew some stuff.

 

Id love that any time of the day.

 

He had a small wine cask above his kitchen cabinets where he poured the remainder of his nights wine into it.

 

it was big enough that he got high end vinegar out of it.  well aged.

 

Ive thought about this for more years than I can count.  I never have left over wine.

 

:sad:

 

he is also the only guy that sued M.Stewart  ( jail bird ) twice and won.

 

sticky finger she did and has.
